Science in Schools
We provide professional development for teachers, course and career information for secondary students and activities for students with a passion for science.
An innovative, multi-university schools partnership program where volunteer university STEM students are placed into year 7 to year 10 classes in low socioeconomic high schools and act as mentors to the students.
Every January year 9 and year 10 students experience university life with lectures, laboratory experiments and hands-on experiences run by our top ranking academic staff.
Residential Indigenous Science Experience (RISE)
A week-long residential camp for Year 9 and 10 Indigenous students to experience the tangible and hands-on nature of science, including workshops and special presentations on chemistry, geology, genetics, physics and maths, and visits to industry.
Year 10 Work Experience
Want to know what it would be like to be a scientist? During the Faculty of Science Year 10 Work Experience Program, you will participate in workshops and activities in a STEM discipline of your choice. You will meet new friends and scientific role models, as well as get a taste of university life. Places are limited.
